Craft Fair this weekend

I’m excited about the craft fair at the Cranbrook library this coming weekend. Should be fun to do.

Update! I’ve committed to the doing the second weekend so I will be there also on Dec 8th!

I’ve added a few more burp cloths to the baby section. Several for boy and girls, and also a couple of gender neutral colours as well. I thought they were the neatest thing when I first saw them. Wished I had some of those when my kids were babies. My oldest was quite projectile to say the least lol.

Like many others I have some Christmas gifts to mail out, so I’m still waiting for the outcome of the rotating mail strike this week.

I think it’s a record…

I believe it is a personal best that I’ve managed to make 4 baby quilts in 2 weeks! Of the most recent ones I did, were a little nautical themed one for a little guy, and I’d been wanting to do a purple girly one for a while now so I’ve finally got it done. They are so fun to do, I just love it! So that means I will have about 6 or 7 baby quilts for show off at the craft fair on the 1st of Dec. I will be posting the newest ones pretty quick.

I’ve been redoing some of the photos for some items as they, in my eyes, are just terrible! I’ve been having a few issues with the pics coming out off colour or too dark etc. So I’m just working out which location in the house is the best for my little photography sessions lol.

In other news, a while back Etsy has made it available for customers to make offline cash purchases such as at local events via Square payment processor and sync. They have partnered with Square reader and discontinued their own payment processor therefore the need for my local shop is probably no longer be needed¬†More info here.¬†They’ve improved upon the connection now, so I am going to just turn off the extension that runs the shop on the site here to see how well things work without it for now.

News Nov 10 2018

I heard on the radio that it is our areas turn for the rotating Canada Post strike but I don’t think it is too disruptive because of the long weekend.

My local shop already automatically posted to Facebook about the two new little baby blankets that I’ve just added. They were fun to make, one, the little boy’s, is kind of a diagonal rail fence pattern and the other one, the little girl’s, is done with one of my favourite patterns, the disappearing nine patch.

There’s been one last price adjustment so that I may offer free shipping on ALL items in the shop!
